Natural park of the Creeks, exceptional climbing site. beautiful swimming

The Calanques is a particular ecosystem. The soil is almost nonexistent, extended cliffs and talus are traversed numerous flaws and cracks into which anchor the plant roots.

The massive attracts all year many tourists and hikers through the wide selection of trails hanging between the sea and the crooked reliefs. Many climbing sites have there since the 1970s: these creeks are one of the most beautiful climbing mountains of France. The GR 51 runs through most of those found in Provence.

Very nice little old fishing port and preserved

The Dirty Cape

Located between Cassis and La Ciotat is one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe culminating, 399 meters, is located in La Ciotat above the semaphore. The 11 km of coastline have 2 listed sites: the Calanques since 1975 and the Dirty Cape since 1989. These two sites and the city are visible from the top of the ridge road connecting Cassis to La Ciotat.

Marseille Cassis is connected to a distance of only 20 km by another beautiful ridge road, Gineste, which overlooks the Calanques and the sea.

Vine

Blackcurrant is a protected designation of origin of wine produced in the commune. This is the first AOC recognized in Provence in 1936 and one of the oldest wine growing areas in France. The vine was already on Marseille location and surroundings before landing (around 600 BC) Greek sailors (OM).

Safety hazard make this flat not worth it even if great location

  • 1 of 5

The flat is in a great location- up the hill from the port town and one of the main public beaches (approx 10 min walk down and 20 min walk up) - and the apartment complex is great for families. However I cannot recomend this actual property after we were locked into the apartment due to a defective lock on the door. The owner was not at all concerned when we tried to reach her as we struggled to get out of the flat- two stories above ground level- and later admonished us for leaving the windows and doors to the balcony open which must have created a wind tunnel forcing the door to the flat to slam... When it was more likely that our kids had stepped out and let the door shut too quickly behind them. In any event regardless of how the door was slammed I think it is a safety hazard to have a door that easily locks in place with a deadbolt that cannot be disengaged by hand. The deadbolt-like lock fell off the pin and engaged an additional lock in the floor so we were trapped.

We were able to thankfully free ourselves by unscrewing the lock apparatus from the door and then were able to disengage the floor lock. It was terrifying as three of our four kids were locked outside of the apartment at the time and it took what seemed like forever to find a screwdriver. Afterwards we learned from neighbors that this is not the first time there has been trouble with the lock.

The owner then charged us for her 'locksmith' to simply put the broken lock back on the door. I purposefully did not reattach the floor lock because there was already a regular lock that worked just fine and I didn't want to risk being locked in again. When I complained to the owner about the charge she indicated she could Easily take out more of my deposit for a conversion fee because my credit card was not French- despite the fact my credit card was charged in euros and I paid a conversion fee already to my credit card company and the fact that the vrbo website did not indicate anything about paying an additional fee for using a charge card. I found her threat quite shady. Again it is a lovely complex and Cassis is wonderful to visit but I cannot in good conscience recomend this place knowing that the door's security bolt so easily engages inadvertently with only the slightest pressure on the door and the owner seems to not care or wants to only blame it on the wind.

Owner's Response: It is not true that I was not concerned. I phoned to tell where is a screw driver and I asked a professional to come and he repaired the lock which is new now. But it is true that the wind mistral can be very strong and you have to be very careful. Carolyn did not seem to be very careful and let the apartment very very dirty

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property and location was everything it listed. The owner was prompt in answering all our questions before arrival and gave us a very good overview when we arrived. She left breakfast for us the first morning and met us very early on our departure day as we had an early flight. I would highly recommend this property and would love to return.

L'appartement est très bien équipé, bien situé, calme et proche de Cassis.

  • 4 of 5

On ne se lasse pas de la magnifique vue sur le Cap Canaille. Dans l'appartement, rien ne manque et celui-ci a parfaitement répondu à nos attentes. Nous étions 4 adultes avec un bébé.

La résidence compte également une grande piscine avec gardien, 2 courts de tennis et l'indispensable piste de pétanque. Le tout sécurisé et parfaitement entretenu. Mme Hurel est toujours disponible pour répondre aux questions avant et pendant le séjour, cela met en confiance. Cassis est un magnifique village, les plages sont un peu petites mais agréables, surtout le matin et en fin d'a-m. Si vous êtes un lève-tôt, allez-y le matin, c'est le meilleur moment, à tout point de vue...Les Calanques toutes proches sont un must, Marseille mérite certainement une visite, surtout en passant par le col de la Gineste - D559). Aubagne, toute proche et ville natale de Marcel Pagnol n'est pas à négliger non plus.

Si on a le choix, il vaut mieux éviter juillet-août, les paysages sont toujours aussi beaux, malheureusement, parmi les très (trop) nombreux touristes, certains (une minorité significative) dénués de toute forme d'éducation gâchent un peu le plaisir.

Globalement, le rapport prix/prestations est bon (c'est évidemment subjectif et cela dépend de son budget vacances).

Owner's Response: Merci de votre appréciation. Je pense comme vous que Cassis vaut la peine d'être visité hors saison ou en début et fin de saison si on le peut. Heureusement la résidence est bien entretenue et agréable même quand les plages sont bondées. À une autre fois peut-être. Vous avez été des hôtes très agréables.

Super!

  • 4 of 5

Gezellig , groot en mooi ingericht appartemant met prachtig zeezicht.

Ontbijten op het terras met zicht op zee en de Cap Canaille is gewoonweg zalig!

Zowel Sabine als Elodie zijn zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Ligt op een mooi onderhouden en afgesloten domein.

Ook aan het zwembad is het nooit druk en is het genieten (zelfs een redder aanwezig).

Het stadje zelf is prachtig met zijn haventje, smalle straatjes en gezellige restaurantjes.

Tip: route des cretes volgen van Cassis naar La Ciotat/gaan eten in La Presqu'île.

Dit appartement is een zeker een aanrader voor een aangenaam en rustig verblijf in Cassis!
